ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

Neurosurgeons treat patients who have a diagnosis of an injury or disease of the brain, spine, or peripheral nerves. Depending on the diagnosis, a neurosurgeon may provide non-surgical or surgical care. Thanks to our advanced technology and neuroradiological imaging systems,  inaccessibility of the brain and spinal cord has been overcomed and currently all types of interventions have become safely applicable. CT, MRI provide information on the nature and localization of diseases.

Neurosurgical patients are given pre- and post-operative care in the our Hospital’s intensive care units equipped with the technological facilities, using advanced treatment protocols. Our clinic has 19 beds and offers comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic facilities. We  admitted 14003 outpatient and 806 inpatients in the last year.  Among these patients, were surgical operations that  449 patients major,583 big, 98  middle and 12 minor.

Our clinic treats many conditions, such as those listed below. While this is not an all-inclusive list, it does include some of the most common conditions:

-Peripheral nerve injuries or compression, resulting in pain, numbness, weakness, and/or wasting of the muscles in the face, arm, hand, and/or leg. For example, conditions such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are common when the nerve crossing the wrist is compressed or entrapped.
